Jumpstart Weight Loss

With the holidays rapidly approaching, most women are seeking quick ways to lose weight. Keep in mind that if you lose the weight quickly, you are likely to gain it right back, unless you use these diets and tips as a jumpstart to a healthier lifestyle.

First, never skip breakfast! Model Diet Plan, www.modeldietplan.com, reports that skipping breakfast slows your metabolism and causes you to eat more throughout the day. This breakfast should be healthy and full of fiber, which keeps you fuller longer. Oatmeal is ideal because it is budget friendly, full of fiber, and easy to make. If you like blueberries, add these to the oatmeal: blueberries have been proven to help raise your metabolism! Next, drink at least drink 8 glasses of water a day. Modeldiet.com suggests drinking at least 60 ounces per day, when trying to lose weight. Avoid soft drinks and alcohol, as these are filled with sugar and empty calories.

Warning! The next few diets are fine for quick weight loss, but do not use them for longer than a week. Again, consider these diets a jumpstart to a healthier lifestyle. When Beyonce needed to drop the weight for her part in Dreamgirls, she used the Master Cleanse Diet. According to Socialite Life, she dropped 20 pounds in two weeks by ingesting only a mix lemonade, maple syrup, water and cayenne pepper. Jamie Pressly has lost 10 pounds on the Cabbage Soup Diet. You eat cabbage soup three to four times a day. One day, you may have up to eight bananas. When Matthew Morrison, of Glee fame, wants his six pack looking good for photo shoots he told The U.K.’s Sunday Mirror he eats nothing but sweet potatoes for three days. He claims that, “the potato acts as a sponge and your body literally shrinks and gets ripped and tight”. Fergie, of the Black Eyed Peas, take a few tablespoons of vinegar before a meal to curb her appetite. Kelly Clarkson and Mandy Moore have had success with the Hollywood Cookie Diet. Eat a fiber rich cookie for breakfast and lunch and then eat a sensible dinner. Pam Anderson brushes her teeth when she has a junk food craving. Angelina Joie stays slim by sticking to a diet of only lean meats, fish and lots of water, as reported by Celebrity Diets.

Cosmo magazine has reported on The Five Pounds in a week diet. First, you dink nothing but water. Then cut out all white grain products: rice, spaghetti and bread. The simple carbohydrates in these foods cause bloating, especially in the belly. Jana Klauer, author of The Park Avenue Nutritionists Plan says, ” Simple carbs wreak havoc on your weight because they are digested very quickly, leaving you hungry and more likely to overeat later.”

Also, it is very important to eat a lot of raw fruits and vegetables. Your body has to burn a lot of calories to break these down, so you are burning the calories as you eat. In addition, to curb your appetite before a meal, eat at least one raw fruit or vegetable and drink an eight ounce glass of water. Other things you should try include: keeping a food diary, keep only healthy snacks at home and when dining out, ask for sauce or dressing on the side.

Do not starve yourself. When you skip breakfast or go below 1,000 calories a day, your body goes into starvation mode, which slows metabolism. Some of you may not like this, but stop drinking alcoholic beverages.They suppress the body’s ability to burn fat. Use spices. You can increase your metabolism by using black pepper, ginger, chili peppers and cinnamon.

Go exercise! Increase your muscle mass. The more you have, the faster your metabolism. Adding five pounds of muscle helps burn an extra 250 calories a day. Here’s a workout tip: you lose more weight and keep your metabolism fired up by doing three to four shorter ten minute workouts instead of one thirty to forty minute cardio workout.

Hopefully, at least one of the tips has helped you jump start your diet. You many want to check out www.nowloss.com/weight_loss_foods.htm. Happy dieting!
